 Thumbs up Applause Thumbs up

They look really good, I also like the mud Smiley

The MG bases are difficult to blend into the basing but a bit more basing material would probably help. Better blending of those bases and a few other figures would really improve the overall look Undecided

What rules are they based for?

More good stuff.

I'm interested in the colour of the 75s, I've only researched early war French so far, and their guns were a darker blue/grey, I've not seen this very light shade.
